Lucky deal!!!

About two weeks ago, spotted something cool on Marktplaats, like a Dutch Ebay. Someone was selling 27 Trek novels, and I made a bid.

Long story short, for the total sum of 16,75 euro, I got novels like Dark Mirror, Ashes Of Eden, Vulcan's Forge, The Return, Avenger, Warped, Spectre, the 4 Dominion War novels, both Badlands novels, 4 Day Of Honour novels, Avenger, Dark Victory and a few others.

Coffee's done, I'm crashing on the couch and not leaving for the entire evening.

I quite liked Warped myself. Jeter is a good writer, and his dark take on DS9 was fun.

Didn't say it was bad, just that it didn't feel like it was written for the trek universe.

I loved the sense of creeping tension throughout

I already figured not all the novels would be classics, but it's just nice to have some extra TrekLit for such a steal.

Re: Lucky deal!!!

I took some inspiration from you yesterday Mage and bought a few used trek books while at the bookstore. I picked up "The Final Reflection" by John M. Ford and "Enterprise the First Adventure" by Vonda N. McIntrye.

I've heard that The Final Reflection is very good, I should try and find it myself.

I finished Dark Mirror. It was certainly fun, but not the great novel some say it is. Atleast, not to me. Right now I'm in Ashes Of Eden.

Pleasently surprised with Ashes Of Eden. I had thought I wouldn't like Shatner's writing, but it was actually quite nice. Now reading The Return.

^Well, it's Shatner's and Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens's writing, to be precise.

Good point, ofcourse. I do wonder how Shatner would do on his own then.

Re: Lucky deal!!!

Have you or Chris read "Enterprise" by Vonda N. McIntrye? I thought I would start reading it today. I tried to look it up in my "Voyages of Imagination" book, but she declined to be interviewed sadly.

The First Adventure? It's a good book - for me, infinitely preferable to The Entropy Effect. The central concept is really cool.

Re: Lucky deal!!!

.Some of the Shaterner books are quite good.Warped isn't one of the better ds9 novels.The rest of the books you won sound like quite a bargain.
